Again, two children are to be taken away for the School for Good and Evil as it has been done for 200 years. Sophie wants to be a princess, she looks wonderful after all and she tries to be good, even if she only does it to find her prince charming. She is totally different from her grubby, bad-tempered friend Agatha, who prefers living together with her mum in their villa on the cemetery.
But Sophie wants to be taken away and she wants it now! Agatha tries to rescue her, so both girls are kid-napped: Sophie is delighted, but Agatha is upset. When, ironically, Agatha is dropped above the School for God, Sophie is stunned. It is she who lands in the abysmal School for Evil. This can only be a misunderstanding, or can’t it?
This book is suitable for young readers aged 8 and 12.
